Teacher Gift

To say that I admire teachers is an understatement. So far, we've had a really good experience with the public school, and the preschool here. Anyone that can devote their day to herding cats* and making them learn something is beyond measure in my book.

Here's what I've come up with for my daughter's two preschool teachers:
They are reversible - so they're essentially the same bag, but one is turned the 'other way.' I gave them to the teachers this morning and got a big hug in return. I was going to do a lap quilt for each of them, but ran out of time.

Just two quilt bindings to go... The Kindergarten Signature Quilt turned out beautifully. I showed it to a couple of parents and they were excited about it as well. My second grade daughter's class did a quilt as well. Another mom and I pieced it, and third mom quilted it. I offered to sew the back of the binding on. They're both sitting in my bedroom, waiting. Need to have them both done soon - the second grade one by Monday and the kindergarten one by Tuesday. Better get cracking!

Have a great day!

Also, I haven't done a giveaway for May. Any thoughts?

* Sometimes when people ask me what I do, I tell them, "I herd cats," and smile. They get the funniest look until I explain I'm, "home with three kids, which is about the same thing."

If they have kids, they know exactly what I'm talking about.
